You know where we’ll be after work on Friday… there’s a free wine tasting at Princeton Corkscrew, featuring a boutique winemaker from Santa Barbara, California! The Corkscrew welcomes back Fabien Castel of Ojai Vineyards, to share four of their newest vintages. (Including one rosé that can’t be found anywhere else on the East Coast… we’re intrigued!)

In case you haven’t heard, it’s Foodtruck Friday at Hopewell Train Station! The delicious event will be held rain or shine, featuring nine tasty food trucks and live music. 5-9pm. www.foodtruck-friday.com

Why not make it a Family Game Night? Princeton Public Library hosts the event, which is free and open to the public. Bring the kids and your board game on! (Loser treats everyone to ice cream at Halo Pub afterwards?) FREE, 6pm. Princetonlibrary.org

It’s your last chance to catch ‘Start Fresh,’ a group exhibit at the Arts Council of Princeton before it closes.
